Restaurants in the Pattaya and Chonburi area are allowed to open for dine-in until 8:00 P.M., but with no alcohol, up to 50% dine-in capacity with air-con, up to 75% outside/no air con.

There was no mention of controversial vaccination requirements/Covid-19 testing as proposed in a trial by the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration earlier last week.

Many restaurants are ready to reopen tomorrow. They are cleaning their restaurant and preparing food delivery orders as well as stocking their supply closets and fridges. They are also making sure to provide alcohol gel and temperature checking in front of the restaurant. Visitors will also be required to “check-in” either manually or through the “Thai Chana” platform for possible contact tracing if needed.
